Thin clouds and a weak sun, but the air was 60 and the water 55. Very calm and glassy with some nice small waves. A few rafts of birds and our one seal were the only things out on the water. Sylvia waded and I swam. I unzipped my wetsuit for the swim in from the buoy line thinking that I should be preparing myself for swimming on New Years Day. Kevin Watkins came by on his way to ride some waves. Kris and I will be traveling next Sunday but I will be at Avila to swim at Noon on 01/01/10, weather, water conditions and water quality permitting. Have a wonderful and safe holiday!
